I shot this a few months ago on assignment from a wilderness group in the region. To read a blog about the precarious journey visit: [link]

This is an 8 shot pano stitched in Ps.

Please view full-size for true colors.

This is otherworldly in its majesty. The way those low-hanging clouds are lit in the right half of the pano is magical. Great choice on the pano btw. Wouldn't have been the same getting to see only a portion of this. :)

Jeeze, that's one hell of a stitch. I would crop just a small bit from the left side. Not a lot because I like seeing the blue sky on the left portion of the image, whereas the right side is covered with heavy storm clouds. It's balanced as is though.

Yeah, i can't remember how many images. 8 maybe. and all handheld. CS3's stitch program works really well.

I thought about cropping some, but when viewed larger, one can really see the mountains in the extreme distance on the right.

it is meant to be viewed 1 1/2ft - 2ft high, then one can really lose themself in it.

i'm glad you like it though.

what did you think of the blog if you read it?

The clouds are nice there, however, cropping it till the black clouds might work too.
